  • Best digital experience

Tier I top banks

  • Equity Bank
  • Diamond Trust Bank
  • Standard Chartered Bank

Tier II top banks

  • Bank of Africa
  • National Bank of Kenya
  • Family Bank

Tier III top banks

  • Credit Bank

This is an indication that customer-centricity and satisfaction are important to the client irrespective of institution size.

Other emerging issues from the report

  • Most Kenyans prefer calling customer contact centres to have their issues resolved.
  • Over 80.5 percent of respondents prefer human interaction to software interaction during such calls.
  • Most respondents are happy with how banks are handling their issues, showing a positive customer-centric approach.

Digital experience

  • Over 49 percent of the respondents prefer mobile banking channels.
  • 15 percent prefer to deal with internet banking.
  • 5 percent prefer going to the ATM.

The preference of using digital platforms has been enhanced by the tech-savvy younger generation aged between 26 – 35 years thus a challenge for banks to build platforms that will appeal to this bankable generation.
